With its lively depiction of a close-knit, gossiping community and its richly drawn female characters, Elizabeth Gaskell's last and finest novel is a warm, funny portrayal of human relationships.

When seventeen-year-old Molly Gibson's widowed father remarries, her life is thrown off course by her vain, manipulative stepmother and enlivened by a glamorous new stepsister, Cynthia. Molly soon finds herself a go-between in Cynthia's romantic affairs - but in doing so risks losing her reputation and the man she secretly loves.

About the Author

Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell, née Stevenson (29 September 1810 - 12 November 1865), often referred to simply as Mrs Gaskell, was a British novelist and short story writer during the Victorian era. Her novels offer a detailed portrait of the lives of many strata of society, including the very poor, and as such are of interest to social historians as well as lovers of literature.

Beautiful edition of a wonderful classic


I absolutely adore this edition of this wonderful, timeless classic. The cover is beautiful and has a great textile feel to it. The pages are clear, easy to read and also feel great. This is important to me because I think reading should be an experience, not just a pastime. The story itself, if you haven't read it before, is a beautiful one about unrequited love, friendship, family and loss. It was never finished so it leaves the ending up to your imagination.
